Photos I’ve sold recently – March 2019

Library photo sales have been trickling along for the last couple of months, no big earners, but a steady feed. Some net pennies (literally) and others a few pounds, but it’s always nice to get a payment into my account every couple of months and fun to see where they end up.

This isn’t the full list of what’s sold, just either those I could find being used online or those whose use was notable.

my 2018 book recommendations

Last year I set myself the modest challenge on Good Reads of reading a book a month. By the time our summer holiday came round in August I’d plodded through 5 and looked like I was going to fall woefully short of my target, but in the following 4 months I read 19 more and finished the year with a tally of 24.

A few things happened in the latter half of the year to turn my reading year around. Firstly I started to get unapologetically picky about what I chose to read and wouldn’t buy anything with less than top reviews on Amazon (and believe me there are loads and loads of books like that, so you never run short). I also decided to dump anything that didn’t grab me quickly when I started reading and finally (the hardest part) whenever I picked up my mobile out of boredom, I made a conscious decision to put it back down and read a book.

Home Life Project – December

Here it is, after 3 years this will be the last (formal) Home Life Project post. It’s provided a wonderful motivation to capture our family life in images and I always found the value of the photos grew as time passed. I tended to be hyper-critical in the days after they were taken and then looked back at them fondly once those days became months.

Next year I’ll be taking on to new challenges and although I’ll be keeping this blog live I anticipate the posting may become a bit sporadic. Home Life Project grew out of an occasional series I did in 2015 called “Scenes From Our Saturday/Sunday’ so it’ll probably revert back to that, an occasional peep into our lives when time and motivation aligns!

Until then here’s a few photos from a very damp, dark and frankly rather uninspiring weekend…Is it too soon to say I can’t wait for spring?!
